Event Description

We are so honored to be hosting the inaugural Jeff Yencha Memorial Family Fun Festival & 5K Race in Downtown Pittston on October 6, 2024. All proceeds from this event, hosted by the Yencha family in memory of devoted father and husband, Jeff Yencha, will benefit children in Northeast Pennsylvania facing cancer and disabilities.

The mission of the Jeff Yencha Memorial Family Fun Festival and 5k is to commemorate the life and values of Jeff Yencha by organizing an annual event that embodies his dedication to family, sportsmanship, and community service. Through a combination of family-friendly festivities, athletic events, and charitable initiatives, we seek to honor Jeff's memory by raising money for charities supporting children battling cancer and life-threatening disabilities in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

By channeling our collective efforts towards this noble cause, we honor Jeff's legacy of selflessness and service while making a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need by providing vital support and resources.

Together, we envision the Jeff Yencha Memorial Family Fun Festival and 5k as a beacon of hope, unity, and generosity, where the spirit of community thrives and the legacy of a beloved individual continues to inspire for generations to come.
